Purchase of chicken feeds

Hallo Zidisha family, I wish to thank you for the support granted.

My chicken are progressing well including the newest flock. However, with the additional flock, it is inevitable that I will have to expand the housing.

I have been expanding a structure that I had since I didn't have capital to construct a new house. This has comfortably accommodated 130 chicken but now I need to have a suitable chicken house as the current one has reached its limit of additions here and there.

I wish to embark on this project at the end of the month after receiving payments and pray that you will support me as well.

Thank you again for lending me funds when I needed for feeding equipment, vaccines and feeds.

God bless you all.

Office rentals & painting community office

Word of encouragement:

Our mothers used to cook beans, but before they cooked the beans, they would pick the bad and useless beans and throw them at the backyard, and they would then cook the good beans.

But when it rained, the bad beans became seed and grew into beautiful bean plants. The same person who threw them away would harvest them, with a realization that the beans she threw away have VALUE.........

Don't cry when people THROW you at the BACKYARD,
Don't cry when people REJECT you,
Don't cry while they are LOOKING DOWN on you.

The RAIN is coming and the same people who are REJECTING you today will beg to HARVEST you tomorrow.

Purchase land & help improve food security

Hi my lenders and friends. This is the current state of my businesses. This is a high level summary. I sold my cow at $240 & bought a small one at $70. However the owner requested I still keep it for him. Part of my profit from this sale was used to finish my small two houses. I know live here and no more renting houses at my rural area! Thanks to Zidisha for buying me this land. Part of the other interest I bought construction materials for building chicken house. I will quote this in Kes faster. 4 iron sheets at Kes 2,400, 38ft wood 1*6 at Kes 2,000, chicken wiremesh a roll at Kes 1800, Wire mesh at Kes 500, handsaw at Kes 350, Nails Kes 200, hasp at Kes 100. I did all the labour in two days despite of the hot sun. I added forest wood since soft wood bought could not complete the chicken house. The house is really beautiful. I have around 10 big chicken and some other small. Earlier my chicken were being eaten by wild animals from the earlier house. I intend to zero graze now. This is also to prevent farm produce damage by the chicks. My peanut business is also doing well actually for the last two days I have been able to make a daily profit of Kes 2000. I do this on part time basis hence the income is not stable but I can make a profit of Kes 10,000 if I am free for five days in a month.My water pumping solar system had broken down due to prolonged rainy season but am in a process of receiving a new one.
